Aston Villa vs. Leicester: High-flying away side ‘expected to take the three points’

Published

on

Leicester head to Aston Villa in a 14:00 GMT kick-off on Sunday having won seven Premier League matches in a row, with Jamie Vardy scoring in each of those games.

The striker is chasing his own record of scoring in 11 consecutive Premier League matches, which he set during Leicester’s title-winning season in 2015/16.

It’s certainly going to be a tall order to even match it, though, as should he manage to score here and against Norwich next week, the 10th and 11th matches are against Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.

Regardless, Vardy is odds-on at 5/6 to continue his hot streak by scoring anytime at Villa Park.

The Foxes should welcome back Ben Chilwell to the starting line-up after the England left-back missed the 2-0 victory over Watford in midweek with a hip injury.

As for the Villains, Dutch winger Anwar El Ghazi is back in contention after a knee injury.

The bookmakers have Leicester as 4/5 favourites to take the three points home along the M6 with them.

Villa are 16/5 to secure a huge three points, with the draw 29/10.

These odds aren’t a huge surprise given the away side’s sensational form right now, which has seen them climb to second in the table, sandwiched between their aforementioned forthcoming opponents, City and Liverpool.

Moreover, manager Brendan Rodgers should be in high spirits after deservedly receiving a new contract until 2025, which has almost certainly put him out of the running of the vacant Arsenal job.

The Northern Irishman has overseen three away wins in a row, all with clean sheets in the process.

But Villa will certainly be no pushovers at home, having only lost to Bournemouth and Liverpool at Villa Park this campaign.

With 17th-placed Southampton and 19th-placed Norwich playing at the same time as them, Villa will be desperate to pick up a point or three to avoid dropping into the bottom three should results go against them.

Manager Dean Smith acknowledged the stern test his side will face, but expected a close-fought Midlands affair.

“They are on a fantastic run of form but there aren’t many teams who will come away from Villa Park and think they’ve had an easy game,” Smith said.

One man who has been in superb form for them of late is Jack Grealish, who scored a sensational goal at Old Trafford last weekend.

The 24-year-old, who can’t be far away from a maiden England international call-up, is generously priced here at 11/2 to get himself on the score-sheet at anytime.
